Job Description

While orthopaedic pet surgery is generally to solve mobility issues or help a pet’s recovery from road traffic or other accidents, soft tissue veterinary surgery is necessary to remediate a wide range of ailments affecting pets. These can include:

  • Oncological (removal of cancerous tumours) 
  • Ear and throat issues (incl. blocked airways, ear canals and laryngeal paralysis)
  • Gastrointestinal problems 
  • Urogenital (incl. urinary incontinence and prostate problems)
  • Skin grafting and wound care
  • Hernia surgery

Certain breeds of dogs may require special corrective surgeries for congenital conditions they suffer from, such as nasal resections for flat-faced dogs (e.g. pugs, bulldogs), skin resections to prevent infections and other issues for dogs with heavy skin folds (e.g. spaniels, basset hounds), and eyelid surgery to treat entropion.
